Despite a very low spectator turnout and a small number of entrants, all of the athletes who performed at the inaugural staging of the Jamaica Administrative Athletics Association (JAAA) Under-18 Invitational Meet were happy to be associated with the event.

Canada and Jamaica are both on a point each after drawing their respective opening games. With all four teams in group B on level pegging on a point each, they still have all to play for to secure a spot in the second round. In the early kick off on Saturday, Jamaica and Canada will be desperately seeking maximum points.

The battle for a spot in the next round is paramount on Winfred Schaefer's mind as the 'Reggae Boyz' take on Canada in their second match in group B on Saturday July 11, at the BBVA Compass Stadium, Houston, Texas.
